Petit St. Vincent Resort in Petit Saint Vincent, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
Softly undulating hills covered by lush tropical foliage meet sugary white beaches on the dreamy 115-acre private island of Petit St. Vincent. This idylic island, also known as PSV, lies about 40 miles south of Saint Vincent in the Caribbean isles of the Grenadines. All 22 generously spaced, freestanding villas and cottages at this chic ecologically sustainable resort front the beach or are scattered around the island's bluffs boasting magnificent ocean views. Plushly designed lounges, indoor and outdoor dining areas, sun decks or gardens afford utmost privacy. Modern comforts include air conditioning, Bose iPod docking stations, Nespresso machines, and high-end bath amenities and towels. Purposely, the villas and cottages have no televisions or Internet connectivity for a chance to truly unplug from the stressful daily grind for a while.
With a two-to-one staff-to-guest ratio, the exclusive barefoot escape offers attentive, tailor-made services. Active guests can rent sail boats or kayaks from the water sports center to troll the crystalline turquoise waters, jog along the outdoor calisthenics fitness trail or play a round of tennis on the lighted tennis court. Zen-seekers may try no-impact workouts at the two secluded Yoga Pavilions facing Conch Bay or be pampered at the treetop Balinese-managed Hillside Spa in one of the four serene open-air rooms. Treatments like a Shirodhara Ayurvedic massage using a series of aromatic oils or a rejuvenating Marni Body Scrub with lemongrass; jasmine and ginger are guaranteed to soothe away pesky muscle aches. The luxury resort also has two dining options. Patrons at the more casual Beach Restaurant and Goatie's Bar can dig their toes in the sand while wielding an ice-cold locally brewed Hairoun Beer adjacent to the live lobster pool (Tip: Lobster season on the island runs from November until April). Elegant Pavilion Restaurant set atop a hill with views of the quaint harbor lends itself perfectly for a twosome romantic dinner. Gourmet cuisine at both eateries features fresh produce, herbs and even eggs from the resort's own organic garden and chickens. Slightly off the beaten path, this sundrenched tropical resort is the epitome of a luxe Caribbean hideaway.

Reviews for Petit St. Vincent Resort
If you want complete relaxation with no TV, no telephone and limited wifi then PSV is the place to go. It was an absolute dream for 8 days to not know what was going on in the outside world! We had a nightmare journey from London, with a delayed flight to Barbados meaning we would miss our connection to Union Island but one email to Lisa in the Florida reservations office and everything was sorted. Rose was there to meet us at Barbados airport and smoothly sorted our connection out with Mustique Airways to Canoun. From there we were met and taken to the dock to get the PSV boat. Matt was waiting on the dock at PSV with guys to take our luggage and from that moment on you couldn't help but relax. Matt is always around somewhere and staff and guests alike seem to respond to his laidback yet efficient way. He and his staff create a unique atmosphere. It's like nothing else in the Caribbean in my view. We had cottage #19 which was on the Caribbean side with it's own little beach and a viewing area high up with a table and two chairs for early morning coffee and sunset drinks. The cottage was comfortable and beautifully taken care of every day by hard working staff. The food in the main restaurant is good with a reasonable choice. If you want to be more informal you can go to the Beach restaurant where there is more choice and they will sometimes have live music or a movie night. The staff in the main restaurant are friendly and nothing is too much trouble - Ken and Nikela really took care of us, Thanks guys :) The island is very natural. Lighting at night is a bit of an issue when you walk to the restaurant as the tracks are not very even, but there is a small torch in the room. The west end beaches are to die for and very private as is the rest of the island. All in all if you are in need of down time and needing to get away from stressful jobs then this will do it for you. You have no choice but to switch off! From Lisa in reservations to Rose at the airport to all the hardworking staff on property, thank you all for a well organised, well run trip. See you soon :)

When I asked my colleague and her husband "what was the best vacation you have taken?", she responded Petit St. Vincent, and I added it to my list of places to explore. After a relaxing week on that island, I can report that it did not disappoint. The island has 20 or so cottages, each arranged so you feel completely secluded. There is an airy and comfortable bedroom and sitting room, as well as a spacious bathroom. At night you can enjoy the starry sky on your private deck. There is no television, phone or wifi to distract. (just having a week without news was such a respite) The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The beauty of the small island is great, but the service is the most outstanding feature of this resort. If you don't want to walk to your cottage, they are there with a ride. If you want lobster on a private stretch of beach, it happens. One morning I had the west end beach completely to myself. After a walk and a swim, I returned to find a cooler of ice water had magically appeared next to my beach bag. Many of the staff have worked on the resort for 10, 20, even 40 years, which speaks well of the island. The menu was small but excellent. Squid ink risotto with local fish, duck confit with sweet potato puree, local lion fish with saffron risotto were among my dinners. Fresh local lobster was a mainstay of most lunches. Fresh juices, eggs from the island hens, fish stew or amazing French toast were breakfast choices. While this is not a 'foodie haven', the meals were all quite good. There is also a well-stocked wine cellar. Scuba diving was characterized by personal service. Alex, Dan and Gillian were attentive and professional. The spa in the treetops was like a little bit of Bali. Sailing to Tobago Cay with Jeff on Beauty (complete with grilled lobster, steak and rum punch after snorkeling) was great fun. If you are after nightlife, formal meals and group activities, this is not the place for you, but if you want a secluded place to recharge your batteries in casual luxury, this is the trip for you.

This is my favorite spot on Earth. This trip was my second, and we plan on staying for two full weeks on our next visit. The food wasn't as impressive this time, as many things had an Asian flare rather than the Caribbean influence that was present before. I was disappointed that there was no longer passion fruit juice available. But those are the only complaints I have. The privacy factor is HUGE! You actually never have to see another persin if you don't want to. We have had cottage #4 both times, and the view is stunning! The rum punch is exceptional. The staff treats you as though you are a celebrity, and go out of their way to make your stay perfect. I can't say enough about PSV! Every other vacation pales in comparison!
I've been tracking this destination for more than 2 decades - finally have the right circumstance to enjoy it, and off we went. The cottages are fantastic, there is more privacy than virtually any other destination I've ever seen or been to, and the setting is just lovely. Spectacular views of the Atlantic and Caribbean, just an incredible spot to recharge the batteries. The cuisine is outstanding, the wine cellar first rate, and the service is of course highly personalized. Matt manages the island, and has just the right people skills to make everyone feel both welcome and special. Service is Four Seasons level, anything you want can be arranged. We chartered a yacht for a day trip to Mustique, snorkled at Tobago Cays, nothing was too much trouble. Lily in the main restaurant was extra special among a fabulous service staff. Lisa in the main office back in Florida was a joy to work with - and arranged all of our transportation from/to St Lucia (which included a flight, car, and boat ride). The amazing reviews are true. Enjoy!
